Lens-Artists-Challenge #60 – Framing the Shot

Framing a shot is one of the things I learned in my photography class and it has become one of my favorite photography techniques ever since. That’s it for now for me.

Lens-Artists Challenge #59 – “angles”

At thought at first when I learned about this week’s challenge posted by Leya https://lagottocattleya.wordpress.com/2019/08/17/lens-artists-photo-challenge-59-angles/ – that I need to shot different angles of one subject. However, as I went through all my photos, I came to realize that in order to portray “angle”, I just need to show my perspective – or what I saw or how I saw the world around me through my lens. Here is my take on this week’s challenge: Continue reading Lens-Artists Challenge #59 – “angles”

“Tough Love”

I freshly made this painting depicting how I feel about tough love. I believe that it is one of the greatest form of love and care we can ever give to our loved-ones. It is needed from a mother to a kid so she can grow strong and resilient. It is needed from yourself to yourself, so we can be the best that we can be. It is needed from friends whose friendships are genuine enough to tell the other the truth about anything. And I hope that we can give this kind of love to our loved ones, especially … Continue reading “Tough Love”

Lens-Artists Photo Challenge #58: Something Old, something new, something borrowed, and something blue

These are very familiar phrases, especially if you grow up watching Hollywood movies about the fairy tale of falling in love and getting married. There is nothing wrong with it, except the lavish notion people put into the idea of weddings but this post is not about that. I myself got married this year. So to the idea of something old, something new, something borrowed, and something blue, here is my response to this week’s Lens-Artists Challenge No. 58: As I said that I got married this year. I definitely got something new, my new marital status, a husband, a … Continue reading Lens-Artists Photo Challenge #58: Something Old, something new, something borrowed, and something blue

100 words challenge: series 1 of 1 – free day

My take on this 100 words challenge is to make it into a continuous series wherein the story continues as it evolves. Read below my first one: It was her free day, so she woke up late, took a shower and went to her favorite breakfast place. She savored every moment, enjoyed every bite of the delicious Brioche con Salami and drank every sip of the creamy Italian chocolate drink. She found a nice spot, after breakfast, in her favorite bookstore. Jackpot! There was an outlet, as she needed to charge her almost-empty-battery-phone. The spot where she sat was overlooking … Continue reading 100 words challenge: series 1 of 1 – free day

Lens-Artists Challenge #57 – “Taking a Break”

My take on this week’s Lens-Artists Challenge #57 – “Taking a Break” is – having fun! Some of us takes a break by pleasure. However you want to take a break, always go for it and never feel guilty about it – because we owe that to ourselves. We cannot give what we do not have so we need to love ourselves first in order to love others. We need to be full first before we can be fully of service to others. You need to take the oxygen first before your kid’s and so and so forth. This week’s … Continue reading Lens-Artists Challenge #57 – “Taking a Break”

What’s you word for the day? – mine is creativity

At times, when we cut some dead connections in our lives, be it only accidental or deliberate, paves way to freedom and a lot of space enough for you to enable more self-reflection, self-awareness and more space for creativity to come out naturally. Ever since I started this blog, which by the way, 2 or 3 weeks ago, I realized that in order to increase traffic to my blog, I need to also engage and participate with like-minded people here. And not only because of that, as it also enriches me to do so, I decided to take time (every … Continue reading What’s you word for the day? – mine is creativity

Great Discoveries

They say that in order to get inspiration, go out from where you are, do something outside of your comfort zone, breath some fresh air, read a book, visit other blogs, etc. etc. etc. It is in this light that I stumble upon wonderful content and such rich source of inspiration for me and here are some of my amazing discoveries: Amazing that you can still see beauty among the ruins. Check this blog out how they captured this (see Lost for Decades in capturing Castle and Mansions below). 99-words writing challenge only. I’d love to do this one but … Continue reading Great Discoveries

that kind of love that hinders….

This is a question to all the mothers out there…what kind of tough love are you doing to make your child/children grow? I know that growth does not always mean comfortable and easy. If your kid misses you like crazy to the point of “does not make sense”, will you encourage such behavior because it feels good to be missed by somebody, that it feels good to be needed? Do you feel guilty if you do not give in? I hope you don’t because it is required for someone who truly love someone to go beyond what is easy and … Continue reading that kind of love that hinders….
